Thread: Billing for a 99211 or 99212

    Default Billing for a 99211 or 99212

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can we bill a 99211 or 99212 for filling out forms for a pt. No exam nor history is done its just an appointment for filling out the pts form. My boss seems to think we can bill pt's ins for this.

    a 99080 is a better fit. You could not bill a 99212 as you do not have 2 out of the 3 key components. If the patient is there face to face with the physician while he fills out the form then you could make a case for the 99211, but a steady diet of billing a 99211 is not wise as it is a flagged level.
